Everglades Lodging Inside the Park
Everglades National Park has no lodging inside the park boundaries. The Flamingo Lodge, formerly located at the end of the Main Park Road, has been closed for years due to severe hurricane damage and is not expected to reopon. However, the surrounding area is loaded with lodging options. The cities of Homestead and Florida City are the closest to the park. We discuss those two areas below. The enormous Miami area begins about 25 miles north of the park and offers literally hundreds of hotels.
